I bought a 1950's Sunbeam Mix Master mixer at a thrift shop. It has a juicer attachment set (which includes a bowl with a center hole and a funnel hole, a ceramic juicer cone with a slotted metal rod in the center, and a metal double-pronged clamp-on device). But it seems that the handle of the mixer is in the way of the place you need to hook the juicer up (a hole on the left side next to the handle ).
Found this website with photos of vintage Sunbeam Mixmaster Mixes. One of the photos might be of help to you.
The handle at the top is supposed to swing to one side to release the beaters. It also swings to one side to put the juicer attachemtn on to use it.
I remember well the old mixer that my grandmother had because I started my married life with it 45 years ago. It gave me a lot of years of good service and I've regretted getting rid of it when I wanted a newer model.
I had a sunbeam mixer from the early 60's. I used it until it wore out...about 35 years, and wish they would still make them. They did put out a Classic model a few years ago. It looked like mine did, but it sure didn't work like mine. I used it only a few times, and when the holidays came, tried to make divinity candy and the motor burned out. I made hundreds of batches of divinity with my first one. I now have a KitchenAid that my kids bought for me.
As for removing the beaters....there was no button or lever on mine. You just had to tug lightly and they would release to be removed.

There are several manuals (PDF files) for different models of MixMasters available.
If the above site doesn't have the correct manual, try contacting Sunbeam through their site and request a manual. Often they will send you a .PDF file free or a hard copy for a small fee. If they charge too much, google search "Sunbeam Mixer Model ### Manual" and check the results.
I hope you get many years of service out of your "old bargain". Happy mixing.
If manufacturer is of no help, ask here, they will get the manual for you:
You tilt/slide the handle away from the the juicer 'port'; that ejects the beaters.
